Yes, my brothers sisters, I did enter this great journey of life as a baby infant, who could not help myself when I was born, but this great Universe provided me with Elders who came before me, to care for me, until I was able to pass the worse. Then after passing through all the trials and tribulations of my childhood, through the help and good care of my Elders, I became a grown man, and today even as I write to you all, I am a Senior Elder. Many of those Elders who were helpful with my care, have finished their journey in life, and have made thier exit. But there were some other Elders who were before my time, who were great African patriots, who have also made their exits, People like Samuel Sharp, Nat Turner, Marcus Garvey, Dr.obert Love, W.B. Dubios, Jomo Kenyatta, George William Gordon, Paul Bogle, Nnandi Azikiwi, Steve Biko, Brother Tacky from Tacky's Rebellion, Ras Makonnen and all the Ras in Ethiopia who have passed on, Kwame Nkuhmah and all his contempories, and to all those named and unnamed, they are so many and cannot be numbered. I would like to pay special respect to them, for their great African liberation works, and for traveling on life's great journey, until it was time for them to make their exit. Where ever you all may be at this time, in this great atmosphere, you remain African patriots historically speaking. Great respect unto you all. The journey of life continues. Take the best care of yourselves and your people.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE
